I try and feed them a rotation of Omega One Cichlid Flakes and a variety of a few different frozen foods. Rotating every other day between them. The frozen's that I use are krill, brine shrimp, emerald entree, and white mosquito larvae. Lately I have been feeding them twice a day. The extra feedings are always the flakes.
But no, there are no pots in the tank. I do have a couple of pvc
pipes hidden under the gravel and behind the rocks. But I don't think that they used the pipes. I saw the babies emerging from the larger piece of holey rock in the middle of the tank.
